Little Girl's Butterfly Bedroom


In our old house (the one that is the size of our current kitchen) our daughter's room was also painted a fun green color. That room was very dark, had only two windows and was pretty shaded. This room is the opposite. It has five windows, light on two sides, a view, and is super bright. So when we tried painting it the same color as before the results were hideous. Just awful. So after attempts at apple, lime, neon, kelly, olive and stem green, we finally found Benjamin Moore's Potpourri Green, just right.


I've been slowly working on the feature wall across from her bed. It has wall letters that spell her name (with toilet paper roll flowers perched in each letter), a multi-colored butterfly decal, four whimsical prints, bunny ballerina prints that she got at her baby naming, and a butterfly cut-paper art that I picked up on my last trip to Ikea.


I hope you notice the Tot Clock on the dresser. I'm telling you, it's the only thing that keeps her in bed until 6am! Click here to see my post on it from Monday. It will change your life.






All the bedding is from Target (or Tar-jay as my grandmother used to say), as is the lamp and the prints over her bed. Here in Northern California we are in earhtquake country, so I feel pretty good about having super ightweight art over her head as she sleeps, as opposed to something heavy!

My daughter has an all purple and white room... and love butterflies. She has lots of purple butterflies decorated here and there, and recently I bought her some 3D butterflies to put on her wall, she loves them! This room is so beautiful. These are the colors I wanted to do our nursery in if we had a girl (but we had a boy) this time around! I love the green... and all the pretty girlie flowers! Such a nice room. Where did you get that shadow box looking picture with the buterflies? did you make it or buy it?

Such a pretty little girls room!

She's crafty, and she's just my type. said...

So pretty! Love the PB kids bed, my little lady has the same one :)

I pinned this post, just to remember the paint color. What a perfect green!

Kelley @ TheGrantLife.com said...

Butterflies are SO sweet for little girls - love it! My babies are a little older but I'm still very much enjoying all of your home and kiddie posts. Have you ever used the feather butterflies on stems in her birthday cakes? The stems are almost invisible so it appears that the butterflies are just hovering around the cake. My daughter has had them for two birthdays, always a big hit! (Oriental Trading Co.)

Cari and Cortnee @ Two Sasters said...

What an adorable room!! My little one has the same bed! We just ordered the mattress and hope to set it up this weekend!

Christine @ Park House Love said...

If I was a little girl, I would totally want to stay in that room all day long :)

SSM said...

Hello Jessica,

I totally agree with the soft wall decor above the bed.

Pretty room!

Colleen said...

Ok clearly we have the same tastes. In addition to the bookcase we have the same sheets and E's bedding is also from Target although it's slightly different. It's such a pretty girls room. I love your wall art. Did you buy the frames at Ikea too? Cute idea with the butterflies.

Tisha said...

I love it! Pink and green is such a sweet combination. Your butterfly wall is so fun too.

Artsy VaVa said...

I adore this room. Great job!

Kisha Patterson-Tanski said...

We have a boy and a girl I love that the green is gender neural (enought) I think I may be inspired to work on a bug/butterfly theme as the two will be sharing a room for a couple of years. Thanks.

My daughter has the same bedding! She happened to be sitting with me while looking at your blog and she noticed this first! Your daughter's room is beautiful. We love the butterflies on the wall and the colors. { I LOVED the DOLL HOUSE and BUTTERFLIES in your daughter's room and it is BEAUTIFUL!}--that last sentence I let my 6-year old daughter type!!! :) Her first comment!

I will be adding you to my list of Meaningful Blogs on my brand-new blog.

Princess Kate said...

Looks great. I just finished my big girl's room and will be featuring it soon. Thanks for sharing.

Came here from livelvoediy. You have an amazing home. My 6 yr old daughter has the same color scheme and the butterfly theme in her room. But look is totally different. In awe of all the decor possibilities that a room offers.
